This morning a delegation called upon the. president of the board and urged the claims of Mrs. Helen Cook, the wife of Mr. John F. Cook, and therefore related to superin tendent of the colored schools. For this reason, It is said. Commissioner Ross is unwiling to appoint her. The delegation consisted of Mrs. Anna Murray.

Calls have become In our busy life of great cities so perfunctory an- obligation, many people have seen fit to drop the at tempt to make them except In cases where condolence or congratulation are in order. These cases demand the leaving of cards In person only; and so visiting,- for form's sake, is drifting out of vogue. So well Is the difficulty of accomplishing all one's visits understood, that people of the world do not hold each of...: to strict account If a season passes with.at an Interchange of cards.

At 11 o'clock a deputation from the cur assler regiment, of -which the prince is hon orary colonel, arrived at the castle in order to congratulate him. The cuirassiers were followed by a stream of other deputations. including one composed of university pro fessors and another of senators from Ham burg, Lubeck and Bromen The dispatch of congratulation which King Oscar of Sweden and Norway sent to Prince Bismarck alluded to the latter as the creator of German unity.

The price'of hanging a murderer wil be fixed, in all probability, by the Lehigh county court. Sheriff Franklin Bower de mands $215.50 for having swung Harry Johnson Into eternity, but the commission ers propose to give him Qnly $03.88. The sheriff today notified the county auditors that he would not accept the smaller sum and asked them not to approve the finan cial statement of the commisstoners for 1894. The auditors will irnvestigate the mat ter and the statement will not get their signatures for a short time, at least. Harry Johnson, .the murderer, was the young man who threw his little daughter Into the Lehigh river and drowned her. He was hanged during the summer, and Sheriff Bower thinksn $215.50 was not too big a price for the job. The commissioners re garded 111.88 as the proper figure for a few minutes work. Ears Clipped for Identifleation. Froma the Coerier-JournaL. Charles Johr.son is a colored prisoner at the county jail who wHi be relaed next Tuesday, his sentence for malicious cutting expiring on that day. One peculiarity about Johnson is that no one can tell how old he is. He looks to be seventy years of age when he is quiet. and when he laughs he looks to he forty. Another peculiarity about Johnson Is that he has only a half an ear on each side of his head, How this happened is not known. Johulson says that his mother told him that his master mark ed him that way In slave time so he could tell him from another boy who looked just like him. The ears show that they have been cut off with a knife. How to Dust, From the Boston, Herald. The ideal maid is the maid who dusts properly. But where do we find our Ideals? Not in our own parlors, as a rule, but In parlors of other women, who do the dust ing themselves.

She must give her a feather dutr, soft silk old handkerchiefs for the piano and the polished mahogany and cheese cloth duster for ordinary use. The mar bles and ornaments must have a separate drqger from the fui'niture and a large, soft plece of muslin can be used to polish the picture glasses with. A chamois and a lit tre oil do for finishing touches for the' ma hog any and polished oak and a soft brush must be used to penetrate the crevices of carving.

SNARCH Foa cELaa6= ROSS, Alged Charles Stin Continue to Put La an AppeUaNRee. fram the Ph"adelphi Inquirer. So many years have passed since Charlie Ross was stolen from his home In German town that the crime is lost to the memory of many, but that has not deterred some people from stil making the attempt to palm off a bogus youth upon the afmicted family as, the lost son. The latest effort of this kind was made by a woman who rep resented herself as the widow of onE of the two burglars who were killed at Bay Ridge, L L., while trying to rob the house of a judge of the courts. The woman brought with her a young man, who, a relative of the boy says, was flat-headed and beetle-browed. and could in no way have borne resemblance to what little Charlie would have been at manhood. She had the story -of the disappearance pet enough-how the two children, Charlie and Walter. were decoyed from the lawn of the house, at Washington lane and Chaw street, by the two men In a wagon, Mosher and Douglass; how they were driven !nto the country, where Walter. the elder, was deopped. and how M2M00 ransom had been offered for the recovery of the younger son. Other facts she seemed familiar with, but her scheme had nothing else in it. Many believe the boy to be dead. There have been a hundred or more alleged Char iHes, but In no instance has the father, who has tiaveled all over the country, had any hope after seeing the alleged child or youth produced. The secret of his fate probably died with the Bay Ridge burglars, one of whom ex pired Immediately after being shot, while the other only lived long enough to say that his companion had known where the child was, that the lad was still alve, but that he himself knew nothing of hie loca tion. In narrating some of the facts the rela tives of the Ross famny also shed more light upon the efforts to find the boy, and made the important statement that once when success seemed assured they were frustrated by one of thf police captains of New York. a non whoLwas charged before the Lexow o mittee with having acquir ed wealth by t most corrupt means.

President Cleveland Attempts to Re eall the Nase of a Verse Writer. 11am the Chiesgo Times-Head. When President and Mrs. Cleveland dined with Secretary and Miss Morton a few weeks ago the President and his wife had not only the pleasure of sitting in chairs of unique design, made for their especial use, but of drinking Punch seVed with a punch ladle which possesses a most extra crdinary history. This ladle was sent to Secretary Morton by Ambassador Bayard as a New Year gift, and It was shade In the time of Hogarth by one of the siver smith's apprentices whose wild career that great cartoonist was fond of depicting in his immortal sketches. The ladle was made out of a five shilling piece, which is about the size of one of our silver dollars, and the work was so akilfully done that- the mill marks on 'the edge of the piece were not effaced and may be seen to this day upon the rim of the ladle. President Cleve land was very much interested in this odd specimen of the silversmith's art, and Seo retary Morton read to him Ambaador Bayard's letter, in which Mr. Bayard said: "I wish the lesson of this lad's skill, ac quired only by a long apprenticeship of in dustrious painstaking, would be considered by our countrymen in the more difficult task of making laws for a great, populous and diversified country. But whether Ever since the years began, Till they be gathered up, The wit that plies the flowing can Still haunts the vacant cup, experience alone can teach." When the Uines of verse were read Presi dent Cleveland scratched his head and ex clmed: "Morton, there's something wrong about that. I don't believe that word wit belongs there. It seems to me It should be truth, or something else. Do you know the author of the lines?" Mr. Morton was com pelled to confess that he did not, and neither the President nor the Secretary, nor yet any of the guests at the dinner party was able to toll the origin of the sentiment. Furthermore, no one has yet been able to learn the identity of the au thor. Secretary Morton has in vain con sulted all sorts of -books of reference and ccllections of quotations. Just before starting on his ducking trip President Cleveland called Mr. Morton's attention to the matter agaIn, and said the lines had been running throug h his mind and that he was sure hd had dce known the name of the author,\but co@ not recall it. Artigetal Nodes and Ears. Frm the CPasg Record. The makingrjof artiB elal noses and ears has become a tood business within the last few years. A nose lWerst modeled to the proper shape in papier-mnache, and then it is waxed and yarnish~ to the tint of the complexion of~ the noseless person, Ordi narily It is fastened on by means of a pair of spectacles, to the noseplece of which it is firmly at hod. N some cases, how ever, where the remaining stump is large enough, it i clamped in place and the spectacles ar* not nepessary. An oar is made In much the samue way, but Is far more difficult to attach. Most frequently small springs fitting into the ear duct are used, but they are likely in the end to ser iously impair the hearing. Other physical deficiencies are remedied by wigs, false teeth and glass .eyes. The iast are made almost exclusively in Thuri gla, Germany, and the workmen are mar velously expert. Grant and Greeley's Fametas Ride. From Seribenr. 'Grant and Greeley became, in effect, foes. They had many party friende in common, who sought by every mans to reconcile them, but in vain. Greeley was once in duced to call at the White House. Grant invited him to a drive, and he accepted. The horses went, the President smoked,and Greeley kept silence-all with a vengeance.

Is of unsound mind, and directed his in caroeration In an Insan asylum. The Investigation was held by Marshal Wilson and a jury at the city Mall. The attorney for the District, Mr. 8. T.

Wood and Charles W. Terry. The physicians stated that they had ex amined the unfortunate man, and they had concluded that he was Insan, sutering from delusions that he was the object of a great conspiracy to destroy him, the Pres ident and the Missouri politicians being at the head of the conspiracy. It was shown that Gooding had published two books of several hundred pages each, detafilng the movement against him, the President being particularly referred to therein as the arch conspirator. Dr. Godding exp that the man appeared to be a second It and he considered him to be a dangerous person to be at large. Mr. Thomas read extracts from the later book. fifam which It appeared that the man was under the delusion that the President had promised him an appointment as a brigadier general on the retired list, but had refused to make good the promise, and was now endeavoring to have him .mur dered. The President was also charged with the destruction of the Old Ford Thea ter building, In order to have Gooding killed with the unfortunate clerks. The public men who died during-the past year or so were declared by the author to have been poisoned by the conspirators, as well as the many men prominent in private life, here and abroad. He Went .Armed. Correspondents Moore and Stevens stated that they were well acquainted with Good ing, who had formerly been a police com minioner in St. Louis. He was a man of education, they stated, and was prominent years ago In Missouri politics. About I, they said, Gooding became possessed -of Ihe delusion that he had been prevented by a great conspiracy from marrying a proud nent St. Louis lady. Then he became pos sesed of the idea that President Cleveland was under many obligations to him for services rendered during the campaign of 188K It was stated that the man's brother had given him funds with which to live here, and the man had become a great nuisance to Missourians in Washington. It was un derstood that Gooding went armed, al though Messrs. Mcore and Stevens believed him capable of being easily frightened off. Deelared k===== Detective Mattingly stated that he had shadowed the man during the past two years, and believed him to be Isarne He thought It not unlikely that Gooding would, on proVocation, or Impulse commit vio lobs. The man had become greatly excited by the Ford's Theater disaster, and be lieved the President and other public men to have designs on his life. Mr. Terry stated that his irm had printed the second bcok written by Gooding. Mr. Wood testified that Gooding was a guest of the Oxford Hotel, and when not laboring ihader his delusion respecting the conspiracy to murder him, appeared to be perfectly rational. He was well behaved. quiet end paid his accounts promptly. Formerly the man had gone armed. but not lately. The jury returned a verdict at once, de elaring the man to be insane, and without family or estate. Marshal Wilson stated that he would at once take Gooding into custody, preparatory to placing him In St. Elizabeth's Asylum for treament.

An unusual ending of a divorce ease is reported from Bibb county. Ga. Mr. and Mrs. Ward had passed several years of happiness In each other's society, but at last they concluded that they could not get along together. A divorce was applied for and eceived. But on the very day the decres was granted Mrs. Ward mat her former husband as he was plodding along alone to his farm. "So you are going to leave me here alone, are you?' he asked. Telling about the occurrence to a neighbor, Mrs. Ward said that she could not stand the man's lonely air, and so she went up to hits and said that she did not believe in divorces anyway. Then and there they de cided to be remarried, and a minister was sent for at once. The Editor's Woed Pile, yromn the Nortbamptoa (fsm.) Gasette. We were engaged the other day'in piling wood in the ,cellar and our thoughts ran in the direction of the amount of labor ex pended in cutting, preparing, hauling and getting the wood to the stove or fireplace. First the trees are felled In the forest. 'then the trunk and limbs are cut into four foot lengths and split and piled; then haul ed out to the roadside or slid down the mountain; then hauled off to market; then delivered at the houses of customers; then thrown into the cellar or woodshed; then sawed; then split; then piled; then carried into tlie house and placed in a woodbox; then burned. Eleven times at least the wood is handled and rehandled, about half of which labor fails upon the seller and the other half upon the- consumer. it is about the same with coai. The original article is of Iess value than the labor re quired to get It into practical use by'the consumer. And so It is largely with al most everything that goes into general con sumption. Labor is the great element of cost In human existence.

"He gave us his order last November, and we were to fill It by the middle of February,. which we did even earlier, as we cabled the order direct to the Geneva manufacturers.

It was known as the Central Overland, California and Pike's Peak Ex press Company. WInlam H EnelL. Alex ander Major and a man named WadleE formed the company, and the contracts with the government for carrying the malls were made out in their namee. I was thesen manager, and had my ifte in Denver. '"his was lo-g before Ben Holaiay was known, and ths= aconts which have been ang that he was the mean who Brat e =thtaahsd the 'pony - are al together wrong. The records at Washin ton will show that I am right, and that two lines of overland express were in operation at the time he started his express. How- I ever, the southern route run by Butterield did not have as much prominence as ours. which for years was known as the *pony express' route. It started in at St. Joseph, 1 Mo., running through Nebraska to Fort Kearney, to Fort Laramie. Wyo., thence to Denver, to Salt Lake City, to Placer vile. Nov., and to Sacramento. Cal. The whole trip, extending half across the con tinent, was made in seventeen das when no accident befell. and accidents were not so num00 ns as some people have in agined. Proen St. Joseph to Denver ie trip took seven days, and fromn Denver to Sacramento was a journey of ten days, That ws. of course, by the regular stage route, and little time was lost in making it. "To accommodate our business we had about 150 coaches, most of which were kept running all the time To haul them we had I 1.500 horses scattered along the route from St. Joseph to Sacramento. In addition, we 'had 6,00 or 7, head of cattle, which i were used in bauling heavy freight and 4 transporting feed for the horses and pro- I visions for our men. You can me that the business was not by any means a small i one, and it continued to grow as long as i there was any use for such mesas of trans- I portation. This was until the completion of the Union Pacific railway to Calfenra., in 1870. Then overland trafo and nag service could be mnaged to better pu pose by the rafroad. and our pony express went out of existence. But up to that tivme I from the day that the route was first open- I ed, in 18I, its busines= had steadily In creased, Even the building of the railroad ansted us, for our line was the best adapted for carrying to western statons I employee and provisionas."

Mr. Finley of Frank H.

As the law inlicts a fne of fty cents for each bottle so used "for mineral watee. o2 other beverages." and as there were twenty-one bottles found on Hohman's premises. he was fned P.iW.

The trial of George Le Cotnte. charged with robbing one Dole Ballerd of seveaR pieces of diamend jewelry several weeks ago was again postponed ths morning. Last week LA Cointe forfeited his bail, and he was arrested on a bench warrant. He proved to be a sick man, and he was 4 placed in charge of a deputy marshal at Le Cointe's stoppingplace, H street be tween 10th and Uth. When the case was called this morning. Dr. Shuts. the jail physician, stated to Judge Cole that Le Cointe was suffering from cholera morbus, but, while he was quite ill last night, he believed the man would be ready for trial I the latter part of the week. The trial was then met down for Thursday next. Unless - he should give bell before thea, Le Coine will be taken to jail as soon as he suiB ciently recovers.
